JUST A LITTLE BOY
He stands at the plate with this heart pounding fast!
The bases are loaded; the die has been cast.
Mom & Dad cannot help him, he stands all alone.
A hit at this moment, would send the team home!
The ball meets the plate; he swings and misses.
There's a groan from the crowd, with boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries out "Strike out the bum!"
Tears fill his eyes; the game is no longer fun!
So open your heart and give him a break.
For it's moments like this, a man you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget.
He's just a little boy, he's not a man yet!
